Of course there are numerous detriments to endurance specific training but are there any case studies where a sprinter for instance, ran an endurance race and performed similar to an endurance trained athlete? What are the detriments, if any, high intensity/interval training has for endurance trained athletes especially if endurance trained athletes were to train for an extended period anaerobically?
Hi Dan, some interesting points made in this thread, and some curious suggestions. See my thoughts on endurance training in the following thread
I believe that a differentiation should to be made between aerobic speed and endurance.
